When it comes to cleaning up biohazards, SERVPRO® takes a meticulous and comprehensive approach to ensure safety and thoroughness. Here's how they typically handle it:

  1. Assessment: Here at SERVPRO of Spring Valley / Jamul, our technicians begin by assessing the extent of the biohazard contamination. This involves identifying the type of biohazard (blood, bodily fluids, sewage, etc.), its source, and the affected areas.
  2. Safety Precautions: Safety is our top priority. Our technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, masks, goggles, and suits to minimize exposure to harmful substances.
  3. Containment: To prevent the spread of contaminants, we set up containment barriers using plastic sheeting and tape. This helps us to isolate the affected area and minimize cross-contamination.
  4. Removal: Biohazardous materials are carefully removed and disposed of according to local regulations and industry standards. We utilize specialized equipment and techniques to safely remove biohazardous waste.
  5. Cleaning and Disinfection: The affected area is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected using EPA-approved disinfectants. SERVPRO follows strict protocols to ensure all surfaces are properly sanitized and free from harmful pathogens.
  6. Deodorization: Biohazardous materials can often leave behind unpleasant odors. We employ professional deodorization techniques to eliminate odors and restore a fresh, clean environment.
  7. Verification: Once the cleanup process is complete, our technicians conduct a final inspection to ensure that the area meets safety and cleanliness standards. This may involve using testing equipment to verify that contaminants have been effectively removed.
  8. Documentation We provide detailed documentation of the cleanup process, including before and after photos, inventory of removed materials, and certification of compliance with regulations.
  9. Follow-up: SERVPRO may provide recommendations for ongoing maintenance or additional services to ensure the continued safety and cleanliness of the property.

Overall, we here at SERVPRO of Spring Valley / Jamul approaches biohazard cleanup with professionalism, expertise, and a commitment to restoring the affected area to a safe and habitable condition.
